Kyrgyzstan Collaborative Governance Project
EWMI, in partnership with the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ICNL), John Hopkins University, the Association of Civil Society Support Centers, and the Kyrgyzstan Development Institute is implementing the Kyrgyzstan Collaborative Governance Project (KCGP). KCGP was an eight-year project that worked to foster effective collaboration between civil society and the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic to deliver social services to its citizens, resulting in a more responsive and accountable government, as well as a more credible, sustainable civil society. Building upon USAID’s and other donors’ previous support to Kyrgyz civil society, KCGP supports government efforts to increase civil society participation in service delivery through social procurement mechanisms. Simultaneously, CGP worked to strengthen Kyrgyz civil society’s ability to shape public policy, perform government oversight, and expand advocacy efforts. KCGP wasmade possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), with additional funding by the UK Department for International Development (DfID).
